Adrian Fini’s Fini Group has launched a membership-only wine cellar in Nedlands as a spin-off to the State Buildings hospitality precinct.
State Cellars comprises 33 exclusive cellars with members to have 24/7 access to their own cellar collection.
It will operate out of a former warehouse on Carrington Street, Nedlands – next door to Mr Fini’s Common Bakery.
The team described the project as an offshoot of State Buildings and in-between an exclusive wine enthusiasts club and a fully serviced private cellar for collectors.
“For our members, wine is both pleasure and necessity,” Ms Farrelly said.
“We believe the wine cellaring experience should inspire and serve the unique needs of our members, facilitating that special personal connection at every touchpoint.
“We're excited to bring a new level of service and sophistication to the wine storage and buying market.”
Ms Farrelly said every wine collection was unique and personal.
"That's why we've created an experience that is as individual as our clients and their wines,” she said.
“Our mission is to provide a seamless, personalised experience for our members, ensuring their prized collections are not only stored, but also managed with the utmost care and expertise.”
Mr Miller said State Cellars had been designed to re-create a cave-like experience of underground cellars.
“The design intent was to reference the textured coloured earth in which vines are grown and contrast this with the robust rigid strength that only steel can provide,” he said.
Former head sommelier at Melbourne’s fine dining restaurant Vue de monde Justin Biskup will manage State Cellars on a daily basis.
